If you have a cavity, you will likely need a dental filling to restore your tooth. In this post, our Orléans dentists explain why you'd need a filling, and describe different types to consider depending on your needs.

What is a root canal?
A root canal is a dental procedure in which the infected tissue is removed from the inside of the affected tooth. A root canal might be necessary if a tooth has developed, or is very likely to develop, an infection in its inner soft tissue.
What happens when I get a root canal?
At St. Joseph Orleans Dental Centre, we'll begin your root canal by applying a local anaesthetic. The dentist will then proceed to remove the infected pulp from your tooth. Once the infected pulp has been completely extracted, we will apply dental material to fill in the hollow area in the tooth.
We will also typically place a dental crown over the infected tooth in order to strengthen the structure and protect the tooth from future damage.
